A former Coventry City youth player Marcus burst onto the Albion scene as a fifteen year old in a pre-season friendly against Derby County with an eye-catching performance that acted as a springboard for him through the youth ranks at the club. 


Closely watched by the club’s management during his time in the Burton Academy a first professional contract came his way and although first team opportunities have been limited so far loan spells with llkeston FC and Aldershot Town have aided his development as a professional player.


However, a strong pre-season ahead of the clubs Championship campaign scoring five goals has gave Brewers manager Nigel Clough some extra thought ahead of the season.
